"Every problem can be addressed in multiple ways. The puzzle is not 'How do I solve this problem?' The puzzle is 'How do I manipulate the environment in a way that's going to get me more of what I want, so I get to do more of what I like to do.' If you set off every alarm [in Deus Ex], that's going to attract the attention of a lot of guards, which means you're going to get in to a lot of fights. So if you want to get into fights, just show yourself and set off alarms. ...it's just like Deus Ex. You apply a little logic, and after a while you sort of learn the rules of the world and the game." - Warren Spector
I'm going to have to keep this in mind when I play Epic Mickey 2. I'm thinking the Disney side of things is going to be just a tad less violent.
